RECIPES: Gourmet Martinis—From Guava To Black Truffle

The original martini called for gin and vermouth. Gin is a complex spirit, and part of the enjoyment of a gin martini is savoring the layering of botanical flavors in the gin.

But with the rise in popularity of neutral-flavored vodka in the 1980s, the vodka martini has morphed into an endless parade of full-flavored cocktails (one lounge in Chicago offers more than 100 varieties of vodka martini). Here are four special vodka martini recipes, plus a classic vodka martini recipe for the less adventurous, courtesy of Grey Goose vodka. These sophisticated drinks will generate excitement at any gathering.
